SPCL 7804 Human Development: Session 6: Unit 2 – The Early Years, continued

Open Educational Resource (OER) created for Professor Elizalde-Utnick's SPCL 7804 course.


Consider your own cultural and linguistic background and educational history.


In this session we will discuss culturally and linguistically diverse preschoolers. Specifically, we will explore second language acquisition and childhood bilingualism. We will also look at educational models for English language learners. We will begin with a quiz on the assigned reading and then discuss the material and engage in application activities.
